In order to protect the hips of children with CP, the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Development Medicine (AACPDM) released an updated “care pathway” recommending the frequency and techniques for monitoring the hip health of children with CP in June 2018. Care pathways combine the latest evidence-based medicine and expert opinion to provide guidance on how to treat complex conditions. Dr. Shrader will discuss the anatomy of childrens’ hips, the impact of CP, the importance of monitoring hips, and how parents and caregivers can advocate for their child’s hip health.
“I know first-hand as a Dad how tough recovery from hip reconstruction surgery can be, “ said Dr. Shrader. “I’m looking forward to talking with the CPRN community about hip issues in Cerebral Palsy, and to give my perspective as both a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and a family member.”
